Corporate Gray was established in 1994 to help transitioning and former military personnel connect with employers in print through the Corporate Gray book (now titled, The Military-to-Civilian Transition Guide), in person at their Corporate Gray “Military Friendly” Job Fairs, and online through Corporate Gray Online. They have set the standard with regard to hosting quality job fairs, publishing a first-rate career transition book, and running an advanced military-to-civilian career transition website. To date, they’ve given over 4 million copies of their Corporate Gray book to transitioning service members, held over 150 military-focused job fairs across the country, and connected thousands of veterans with employers through Corporate Gray Online. A brief description of each major service follows…
The Corporate Gray Military-to-Civilian Transition Guide provides useful and actionable advice to separating/retiring service members. From self-assessment to resume writing to networking to salary negotiations, this book leads you through each step of the job search process. A free copy is given to everyone leaving military service from Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia.
The Corporate Gray Military-Friendly Job Fairs connect military veterans face-to-face with both local and nationwide employers. The Corporate Gray Job Fairs are currently being held in the Washington, DC Metro area and Virginia Beach. These events are especially for transitioning service members, veterans, and their spouses. The job fair schedule is shown at http://www.corporategray.com/jobfairs.
